DAVE’S PREDICTIONS

1- DOLPH ZIGGLER VS. RUSEV
For a match announced six days before SummerSlam, I don’t believe for a second that this will be the end-all-be-all for the Ziggler-Rusev feud. Rusev needs his heat back so I predict a victory at SummerSlam and probably next month until they do a mixed tag where Ziggler and Lana finally go over).

2- TEAM BELLA VS. TEAM B.A.D. VS. PCB (THREE TEAM ELIMINATION MATCH
Twice tonight I think we’ll be seeing some reflexive booking. It’s highly unlikely that Sasha Banks will be making many more NXT appearances, so I say she follows up a hard-fought loss at Takeover: Brooklyn by being the boss of this match and getting the final pinfall (possibly earning the ire of Naomi).

3- RANDY ORTON VS. SHEAMUS
This match is the new Orton vs. Cena. Even though Orton won last month, I think we’ll see him win again to set up a Sheamus cash in later. That way he’s once again the number one contender like he was when he beat Rollins at ‘Mania.

4- KEVIN OWENS VS. CESARO
Can’t they BOTH win?! Argh. While I think we’re about to experience the Fall of Cesaro (in which I mean he RISES during the Fall season), Owens is in dire need of a victory to make up for the months of jobbing to Cena (and his likely loss to Finn Balor at Takeover). I say Owens goes over and starts chasing the IC title so we can be a bit less depressed about that belt.

5- STEPHEN AMELL & NEVILLE VS. STARDUST & KING BARRETT)
Even though I bet Amell is a big enough WWE fan that he’d offer to let the heels go over, Barrett is the kiss of jobber death when it comes to a match on any show besides Main Event and Superstars. The superheroes beat the supervillains when Amell pins Barrett.

6- WWE TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS THE PRIME TIME PLAYERS VS. LOS MATADORES VS. THE LUCHA DRAGONS VS. THE NEW DAY (TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH)
While I love the Prime Time Players, I think their time as tag champs has come to an end. However, I don’t think The New Day needs the titles either. I’m going to make my upset pick of the night and predict that The Lucha Dragons finally live up to the potential they had when they stole the Raw after WrestleMania and win the belts here.

7- BRAY WYATT & LUKE HARPER VS. DEAN AMBROSE & ROMAN REIGNS
While plenty of folks are angling for an Ambrose turn here, I think they draw that out for a month. The more important matter is that Roman was pinned by Wyatt last month and he needs to look strong at SummerSlam. I say Reigns is supreme and wins in what I say is the dark horse match of the night.

8- INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPION RYBACK VS. BIG SHOW VS. THE MIZ (TRIPLE THREAT MATCH)
Normally I make sure to properly time a pee break during a PPV, this match is for a full on BM. I don’t know what Ryback can do to restore any legacy to the IC belt, and neither of his opponents are any more promising holding the strap. I say Ryback wins this en route to losing the strap to Owens later on

9- U.S. CHAMPION JOHN CENA VS. WWE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION SETH ROLLINS (TITLE-FOR-TITLE MATCH)
There’s no way Cena wins his record-tying 16th WWE Championship with such little run-up. On the other hand, I think the U.S. Title should be lost where its legacy was restored; on Monday Night Raw in an open challenge.

10- BROCK LESNAR VS. THE UNDERTAKER
Brock has to win this, right? He (technically) lost at WrestleMania and was made to look like a chump against Rollins at Battleground. ‘Taker’s revenge wouldn’t feel all that great at SummerSlam, so I say Brock wins here to set up a final match for the two (and for Undertaker ever) at WrestleMania next year.

Up next… Brett’s picks!

    NEW DAY!

  3. 1- DOLPH ZIGGLER
    2- P.C.B
    3- RANDY ORTON
    4- KEVIN OWENS
    5- STEPHEN AMELL & NEVILLE (We all win if EVERYBODY COMES OUT IN CAPES!)
    6- THE NEW DAY
    7- BRAY WYATT & LUKE HARPER. –Dean and Roman Reigns have been too much of a tight family on Raw, so something’s gonna happen to make the two former shield members feud.
    8- THE MIZ
    9- JOHN CENA wins by disqualification, so no title change. Expect some interference from TRIPLE H, and maybe….MAYBE…Rick Flair….
    10- THE UNDERTAKER – But only from help from Kane, and after Brock get some help/interference from Sting (25 minutes.) Time the ref bump length (20 minutes)
